As now is the mid-time of first semester, Minhang Crosspoint High School held its mid-term parent meeting last Friday. This parent meeting aims to build a better communication bridge among teachers, students and parents. Teachers and students introduced a variety of extracurricular activities and academic activities during the meeting. We also truly believe in our students in their future life.
The parent meeting officially started with the warm applause of the parents, Mrs. Cao, our college counselor moderated the meeting. First of all, our executive principal, Mrs. Vincze, expressed her point of view of school regulation. She expressed her gratefulness as well as her hope to our students. In the end, she sang one clip of the song she guide for school chorus by the request from all the parents. The song ended with a full applause.
Then Principal Xu also delivered a speech. Although he was in a trip in CCA, busy with the senior students' application. Still, he was able to record a video for the meeting. In his video, he hopes that the students should determine their goals, get used to the international school system as soon as possible, and successfully fulfill their ultimate goal of dream school.
In the next session, students from Crosspoint also introduced various activities and competitions for the students which help them for their college application. First, Mr. Zhou and Mr. Zhang jointly introduced the Polygence school tutor guidance project, hoping to provide more high value opportunities of extracurricular research projects to our students.
After that, Mr. Lu and Mr. Tao introduced the National Economics Challenge (NEC), a competition which is a highly supportive competition for business, law and liberal arts applications. In NEC, students are required to rise fund themselves. Mr. Lu also talked about his experience of finding a sponsor which impressed parents a lot.
Last but not least, Principal Zhang addressed his speech and enhanced that the school – parent relationship is the most important issue for student’s education. In order to better corporate with parents, we elected 2 more members of Parents Teachers Association. They are mother of Eric Zhou and mother of James Zhang.
Based on the Sino - Western teaching management of Crosspoint, Mr. Zhang encouraged students to explore potential problems in high school instead of in University in the States. Our teachers are more than willing take responsibility for guidance at all time. Meanwhile, we hope that our parents can cooperate with the school closer on education ever. Our teachers are ready to give students the greatest assistance in academics and daily life to promote the personalized growth of Crosspoint students. “Emotion is the greatest support for academics, self-discipline is the greatest guarantee for academic achievements.” We never advocate Nanny-style education which is useless for students. In the end, Mr. Zhang hope that parents could communicate with us on students' integrity and rebellion aspects to explore better education methods.
